5 Reasons to Hire a Quality Commercial Roofing Contractor


There is plenty of reason why you should hire a quality commercial contractor. However, we’ve found five that stand out from the others. Five qualities that’ll make your hiring decision easier. They can also help make your wallet a little happier too. Qualities to consider when interviewing commercial contractors for your upcoming repair or replacement project:

New call-to-action

1. Peace of Mind Knowing Your Commercial Investment is Protected


We understand that owning a commercial property comes with stress. Many problems can occur throughout the day. Worrying over potential damage to your property from roofing issues is the last thing you want to have to add to your plate. 

Whether it is your property or you have tenets, the damage that can happen from even the simplest roof leak on a commercial roof can be stressful. Hiring a quality commercial roofing contractor will take that weight off your shoulders. Therefore you'll have peace of mind knowing your investment is in great hands.

2. Top-Level Communication During and After Your Commercial Roof is Done


Property managers, tenets, or renters want answers. When is the work going to get done? How noisy is the roofing project going to be? Will we be able to enter and exit the building safely? We get it. And when you can’t get them the answers promptly it only adds to their frustration and anxiety. 


Let’s be honest, they’re many moving parts on a commercial roof project, even on some of the simplest repairs, not to mention a complete roof replacement. Top-level communication is a must. A quality commercial contractor will understand this and be proactive. They’ll find out who is the point of contact for you at the property. They'll open up a direct line of communication from the beginning, therefore it’ll keep the noise and chatter down for you. Top-level communication from start to finish is a must to run a commercial roofing project successfully. 

3. The Highest-Quality Commercial Roofing Materials

Not all commercial materials are the same. There are brands and products that a seasoned roofer will just not use. Reputable commercial contractors use the best materials in the industry. Cutting corners on products will most certainly cost you more money down the road. Making them look bad. By choosing a quality contractor you'll also have the top manufacturers in the industry behind you and your roof system. Commercial manufacturers stand behind the top contractors for your protection. 

4. The Best Commercial Roofing Warranties in the Industry

Quality commercial contractors will not only provide you peace of mind by using the best products. They’ll also be able to provide you with the longest warranties in the industry. Top commercial manufacturers certify companies after staying in business and performing high-quality work. Roofing companies are then able to offer NDL(No Dollar Limit) warranties. Are you coveredContractors that offer special manufacturer-backed warranties are going to perform great installations. The large commercial roofing manufacturers will be responsible for keeping your roof watertight. Not the roofing contractor. Some of these warranties can extend up to 30 years. That means that you have an insurance policy on the workmanship. No leaks for 30 years guaranteed.

5. Get Commercial Repairs and Maintenance Instead of Full Roof Replacements 

Many contractors who do commercial roofing will not offer small roof repairs and maintenance. They’ll only do full roof replacements. When a roof has 3 to 5 years of life remaining, it can be beneficial to perform maintenance and repairs. And it can definitely help your wallet.


Contractors who can provide repairs and commercial roof maintenance can help you save money. Commercial roofs can be difficult to repair, therefore some companies don’t offer them. By providing you maintenance and offering small commercial roof repairs you’ll be able to keep your roof performing at the highest level. 

Benefits of Hiring a Quality Commercial Contractor

  1. Professionalism

  2. Demonstrated integrity

  3. Provide you with an exceptional experience

Professionalism. We know from experience having done many large commercial projects. The entire process can be stressful. From finding someone to show up on time, to getting written estimates. To have the work completed. A quality commercial contractor will bring a level of professionalism that you’ll come to appreciate. Through a high level of communication and experience from previous commercial jobs.

Demonstrated integrity.  It's being transparent in a time of vulnerability. It's being honest about your particular situation. If your commercial roof is leaking but it has useful life left in it, it can be repaired, therefore they’ll tell you. Contractors in our industry are notorious for pushing their agenda, via full roof replacements. Quality contractors do what's best for you and your property.

Provide you with an exceptional experience. The entire experience from start to finish can be frustrating and stressful. It’s expensive to work on commercial roofs, the experience should not be stressful. A quality commercial roofing contractor will do their absolute best to provide you with an exceptional experience every step of the way.
